My husband and I just celebrated our eight year wedding anniversary with a beautiful weekend away.  My in-laws watched our kids for an entire 48 hours, while we escaped to one of the most amazing getaways in California – Wine Country!  I feel so lucky to live just an hour and a half away from the Napa and Sonoma regions.  My husband planned our whole trip, which included staying in the city square in Sonoma.  If you have not spent any time here, you need to!  My favorite restaurant that we ate at was The Girl & The Fig… WOW.  The food was incredible.  I highly recommend it!

Although we’ve tasted in Sonoma many times, this time we decided to take a wine tour with a driver, so that we could really enjoy the tastings and not have to be concerned about one of us being the designated driver.  We visited the historic Buena Vista Winery and Larson Family Vineyards.  After a lunch back at the square, we were taken to my favorite winery of the day – Peter Cellars Winery.   The owner was very charming and his wines were our favorite of the day.  They do tastings by appointment only, and I highly recommend checking them out!  Our last stop was  Gloria Ferrer, which had the best views of the day!

Saturday night we had dinner at the amazing El Dorado Kitchen.  There was a wedding taking place on the back patio with THE CUTEST photo booth I’ve ever seen.  The couple had their names / wedding date and some cute sayings on a giant black “chalboard”.  All of the guests had adorable paper mustaches, etc.  It was so adorable.  We then had a movie night at Sebastiani Theater, and saw Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, which ended up being a great BBC film. Forgive the silly photo below of my husband having a conversation with the manequin in the original theater old style box office.  :)

We wrapped up our trip with a couple’s massage at the Cottage Inn and Spa.  SO RELAXING!

While we were on our trip, I didn’t take too many photos, but I was definitely scouting the entire time.  I have to say that there are SO many gorgeous spots for photos in this beautiful part of California.  If you love the Napa/Sonoma area, I’m always open to traveling there for engagement sessions, and weddings of course (I have shot a handful in the area already).
